partial knee replacement
« on: October 25, 2010, 11:46:57 PM »
 I signed up looking for feedback on partial knee replacement experiences but was unable to find any answers to my questions.
I had a left outside, partial knee replacement exactly two weeks ago. I am really pleased with the rate of recovery.
The wound is neat and healed up well.
I can walk without stick, do stairs properly up, and Im  just getting the hang of down, one foot one step.
 I am 53 and have suffered increasing stiffness, pain, swelling andfor 10 years suffered an increasing disinclination to do activities I enjoy liked dancing, ice-skating and skiing. I have stayed active with some personal training during the last three years.
I believe the Sigma prothesis I have is fairly new but I would like to hear from anyone else who has had partial replacement.
It was carried out in Southampton UK by Professor Barrett and his team.
I was told to increase the distance I walked every day and today I walked two lots of two miles. It was sunny, frosty and pretty!
Think I overdid it as this eve I have needed to do lots of ice, swollen and sore. Can you damage soft tissue this way?
I would love to hear what the longer term recovery was like for anyone else.
